She works in several different mediums, focusing in graphite and ink drawings as well as oil and acrylic paintings. Her artwork is a direct reflection of her personality and differs depending on which medium she is working in.

A “Jane-of-all-trades,” Sadie’s modalities include handlettering, watercolor, graphic design and mixed media, which she uses to cover surfaces for clients across California, to teach private classes, and to build her product line of prints, apparel and goods. Sadie’s work is driven by a passion for the natural world, radical self-acceptance, girl power, wabi-sabi...and a healthy dose of sarcasm and playfulness - all with an abstract, raw and unfinished flair. Inspirations include Shepard Fairey, Jackson Pollock, Banksy, Gemma O’Brien, Lisa Congdon, and any artist with a gripping bio, quirky personality and unconventional approach. Sadie’s magic comes to life with the help of her witty daughter Brooklin, her two fur children Roody and Buddy, hugs and coffee - lots of it.
Chris Pedersen grew up on the Central Coast of California. He explored his beautiful surroundings and discovered his drawing talent and creative imagination.
His art career started with a concentration of illustration and graphic design. Currently Chris is making fine canvas oil paintings. Chris has maintained the youthful fantasy aspect of possibility. This dreamy realm fuels concepts which start as sketches and result in handsome well crafted paintings. “Every time you go surfing it’s a new experience.” He compares this to his artwork, “When you sit down to draw or create something, you never know what’s going to happen.” http://foreverstoked.com/
Charlie Clingman was raised in spacious rural settings which had animals to play with and horses to ride. This planted the seed for his future exploration and appreciation of nature. He finds that 20 years of international surfing experience has not only been a great thrill and good exercise but a fine way to observe the water and surrounding landscapes. He seeks to have his paintings represent the beauty and action he encounters. Charlie holds a passion for natural dynamics. He feels that studying from life (plein air/painting outdoors) is essential. http://foreverstoked.com/
